Window on my World




I was fortunate enough to have Stampin' Up! come to my home and photograph my creative space. I was thrilled and honored for them to come. Let me just tell you how stressed I was, too! Many of you have left me sweet comments or contacted me about my space. And no...it is not always that clean! LOL! I am going to start a new *series* on my blog that I mentioned in an earlier post. Some have wondered where the "rest" of my stuff is. No...this is not all of my stuff, but yes...it is the *stuff* that I use for my creations. So...with that in mind, I have decided that I will show you *a closer look*. That will be the name of my posts when I do them. I will most likely do those posts on Sunday. What these posts will entail will be a specific area of my space so that you can see how I organize so much stuff. While it doesn't look like there is alot, when you take *a closer look* you will see how much can be stored in a small area. I hope that this *series* will be beneficial to those who are seeking new organizational strategies. Please leave me your comments or if there is something you have a question about and I will try to address those in my posts! Thanks for fluttering by.

Kelly--this is so cool! Congratulations on your space being featured! We're hoping to make an addition onto our home this summer-- it will have a space for me to create! Currently, I work off of my dining room table. I'll be certain to check out your wonderful ideas for future use!

I love the idea that you are going to show different areas of your crafting space. I struggle with a way to store 12 x 12 paper and would love to know what you do with that. Thanks

Kelly,

I am super excited about your new feature. You have been a source of inspiration for a long time. Our styles are very similiar.

I couldn't believe it when I saw your space in Stampin' Success.
Congratulations on being featured!

I can't wait to learn more about how you organize. I keep arranging and rearranging my space. I still don't feel it's there yet.

That was YOU? I had no idea!
I LOVE your space! It's so CLEAN and organized!

I'm looking forward to your "a closer look" entries! I would also like to know how you store/keep small spools of ribbon under control. Mine seem to be rolling everywhere, and if I use a jar to keep them in, they all unwind and tangle into a horrible mess. Thanks!!
hugs,
Elaine

Silly Lady, you could have said "Of COURSE my space is always that neat!" and we'd be none the wiser. Your creative space is truly beautiful and inspirational - care to come and help me organize mine in our new house in Georgia 3 months from now? LOL

Kelly, I was blown away when I saw the feature -- your space is incredible! Congrats! Maybe if my space looked like that I'd create projects as fabulous as yours! ;) I'm looking forward to seeing more of your ideas!

Shows how closely I read my Stampin' Success. I assumed the photos were of a staged room ... didn't even realize it was a real person's studio ... let alone YOURS, Kelly! WOW! Congratulations! That must have been very exciting to have SU photograph your space! You're amazing!

Wow! How cool! I didn't know as I read that article that it was the stamping space of a blog I visit often! Congratulations! I am very excited for your "closer look" specials!

Kandi Phillips said...

Oh my word that was YOU!!!!!!! I am so excited to know that it was a fello blogger featured in that article. WAY STINKING COOL! I was so envious of the space when I was looking at the article. I was even thinking, okay, I have the white bookshelves, find some nice whicker baskets, order more storage boxes, etc etc. Big congrats!!!!

Cynthia said...

Hi Kelly,

Just love your "space". Love that bookshelf and...that you painted "river rock" on the back wall, "soft sky" on the other and found curtains featuring both colors. How cool is that!! Please tell me how you store all your retired sets! I need to take the time to sell them but in the meantime..yikes!!

Lori said...

Hi! Where do you keep all your stamp sets? Thanks!
